How to Sell Old Mobile Phones

Knowing how to sell old phones can save space, save the environment and make you some money!

Wondering where to sell old mobile phones?

What about trading them online – for cash?

Did you know? People in the UK keep a mobile phone for an average of 22.4 months. So, what happens to all their old devices after less than two years? Many are disposed of incorrectly or end up gathering dust in drawers or storage. And although some people do try selling their old mobile phones second-hand, the process can be frustrating and time-consuming.

A far better option is to recycle and sell old mobile phones quickly and easily for a set price. You can relieve your business of its old devices, and earn some cash in the process.

An Innovative Upcycle

A German upcycled furniture company called Pentatonic make cups from recycled smartphone screens. The cups are called ‘Handy’ cups, the German word for a mobile phone.

Along with phones abandoned after use and broken screens being replaced, high volumes of discarded smartphone screens are also created during the manufacturing process. This scratch-resistant, strong and high-quality material is crafted into beautiful homeware products.

The Pentatonic technicians carefully separate and sort the glass before it’s melted and re-set into dishwasher-safe, scratch-resistant glassware.
